What is Respite Care?
Respite care is defined as the transfer of primary caregiving responsibilities to another person, typically a professional caregiver, relative or friend, in order for primary caregivers to receive temporary relief from caregiving responsibilities.
Respite care can take many forms – some family caregivers choose to have someone take on caregiver duties for a few hours a week or a few hours a day. Respite care can also be used for longer periods of time to accommodate an extended break or vacation.
At Comfort Keepers, we offer customized services and flexible scheduling that gives family caregivers a well-deserved break. Care can be scheduled as-needed or as part of a weekly routine. Our specially trained Comfort Keepers® help seniors live comfortably and safely in their own homes while engaging them in intellectual, physical and emotional interactions that make their days better.
What You Need to Know When Caring for a Senior Loved One
Caring for a senior loved one is both rewarding and challenging. Family caregivers need to remember that it’s important to take necessary breaks and practice self-care so they can ensure that they continue to find joy in their role.
It’s important to recognize that being a family caregiver can come with feelings of loss, stress and physical strain. Caregivers risk their own health and wellbeing when they don’t account for their own needs or take a break when necessary, and respite care provides a convenient solution for many families.
With respite care, family caregivers rediscover the joy they first found in caring for their loved one. We help families find the perfect balance between caring for their family member and taking good care of themselves. Our Comfort Keepers are caregivers who are passionate about their work, build meaningful connections with client families, and ensure everyone is on the same page.
